However, that doesn't appear to be the case.
According to U of L football SID Rocco Gasparro, Rascati is still enrolled and attending classes at U of L this semester.
"He's still here and participating in winter workouts," Gasparro said on Monday.
So that clears up that question.
There have also been questions about Tyrone Saterfield's status since he didn't play in the GMAC Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.
However, Gasparro said on Monday that Saterfield continues to work out with the team and prepare for the upcoming season.
"He's been working out with the rest of the team and continues to be a member of the team," Gasparro said.
Saterfield played in each game except the bowl and recorded 31 tackles, including 4 for a loss, as a junior.
Two players, quarterback Eddie Miller and offensive tackle Ryan Holifield are no longer on the team. Miller returned to California after the fall semester and Holifield transferred to Middle Tennessee State.
